Mets Morning News: Wheeler's Debut, Santana's Start Pushed Back, InjuryUpdates

In his Mets debut, Zack Wheeler took the mound for St. Lucie and gave up four runs on seven hits, while striking out four and walking none. He struggled in the first inning, giving up three runs, but soon settled down.

Johan Santana's second minor league rehab start will be pushed back one day, to Thursday, because he wasn't feeling strong enough following a bullpen session on Monday.
"He came back and didn't feel quite as strong as he would've liked," said [Sandy] Alderson. "So rather than force it, we backed it off a day, and we'll see how he feels (today). I don't view that as a setback necessarily. I think it's a tweak in the schedule. We'll know (today) if it's anything more significant."
Injury Updates:

Ike Davis has been running this week. By the end of the week, the Mets will decide whether the first baseman will have season-ending surgery to repair his left ankle.

Taylor Buchholz, who has been out since May 30 with depression and anxiety, is most likely not returning to the team this season.
